Chaos tool suite

Chaos tool suite
This suite is primarily a set of APIs and tools to improve the developer experience. It also contains a module called the Page Manager whose job is to manage pages. In particular it manages panel pages, but as it grows it will be able to manage far more than just Panels. For the moment, it includes the following tools: Plugins -- tools to make it easy for modules to let other modules implement plugins from .inc files.

Rules The Rules module allows site administrators to define conditionally executed actions based on occurring events (known as reactive or ECA rules). It's a replacement with more features for the trigger module in core and the successor of the Drupal 5 workflow-ng module. Example use cases Build flexible content publishing workflows changesSend customized mails to notify your users about importantCreate custom redirections, system messages, breadcrumbs, ...Build an eCommerce store using Drupal Commerce And many more... Features Obviously, you may use reaction rules to react upon any event with custom conditions and actions.Allows functionality to be re-used via components (Drupal 6: Rule sets only).Flexible scheduling system that allows scheduling any component / action.Users can share their customizations by using the built-in import/export feature. Integrations Modules may use the Rules module's API to provide new events, conditions, actions or default rules, which can be customized by users.

Views You need Views if You like the default front page view, but you find you want to sort it differently. You like the default taxonomy/term view, but you find you want to sort it differently; for example, alphabetically. You use /tracker, but you want to restrict it to posts of a certain type. You like the idea of the 'article' module, but it doesn't display articles the way you like. Views can do a lot more than that, but those are some of the obvious uses of Views. Views for Drupal 8 Views is in Drupal 8 Core! Recommended versions of Views! For new installs of Drupal 6, we recommend the 6.x-3.x branch. The 6.x-2.x branch of Views is in critical/security maintenance mode only. Dependencies The Drupal 7 version of Views requires the Chaos Tool Suite also known as CTools. Views' bug squad The Views' bug squad is a group of people who have dedicated a few hours a week to help provide support and fix bugs in the issue queue.

Transliteration Provides one-way string transliteration (romanization) and cleans file names during upload by replacing unwanted characters. Generally spoken, it takes Unicode text and tries to represent it in US-ASCII characters (universally displayable, unaccented characters) by attempting to transliterate the pronunciation expressed by the text in some other writing system to Roman letters. According to Unidecode, from which most of the transliteration data has been derived, "Russian and Greek seem to work passably. Do I need to use transliteration for uploaded files? This question can't be generally answered, rather it depends on what you want to do with user submitted file uploads. you let users upload files to your site and offer these files as download without PHP processing, and you're on Drupal 6 or later, and not using a Windows-based web server. However, whenever you want to process uploaded files on the server, you most likely need transliteration. Credits Authors: Stefan M. Current maintainer:

Devel A suite of modules containing fun for module developers and themers ... Devel Helper functions for Drupal developers and inquisitive admins. This module can print a summary of all database queries for each page request at the bottom of each page. The summary includes how many times each query was executed on a page (shouldn't run same query multiple times), and how long each query took (short is good - use cache for complex queries).Also a dprint_r($array) function is provided, which pretty prints arrays. Generate content Accelerate development of your site or module by quickly generating nodes, comments, terms, users, and more. Devel Node Access (DNA) View the node access entries for the node(s) that are shown on a page.

Entity API This module extends the entity API of Drupal core in order to provide a unified way to deal with entities and their properties. Additionally, it provides an entity CRUD controller, which helps simplifying the creation of new entity types. Requirements Drupal 7.2 or later; suggested Drupal >= 7.15 Documentation You can find documentation in the handbooks. Overview For site-builders This is an API module, so it doesn't provide any end-user features. A Views display plugin and field to render or link to any entity (by view-mode)A CTools content plugin to render any entity (by view-mode)It ships with the Entity tokens module which makes sure there are tokens for most entity properties and fields, i.e. it provides token replacements for all entity properties (or fields) that have no tokens and are known to the entity module (read about the entity property info API below).

Pathauto The Pathauto module automatically generates URL/path aliases for various kinds of content (nodes, taxonomy terms, users) without requiring the user to manually specify the path alias. This allows you to have URL aliases like /category/my-node-title instead of /node/123 . The aliases are based upon a "pattern" system that uses tokens which the administrator can change. Requirements Versions The 7.x-1.x and 6.x-2.x branches are currently accepting new feature requests and are kept in sync as much as possible. Known issues Multilingual URL alias support is still a little unstable and should be tested before used in production. Recommended modules Redirect (D7) / Path Redirect (D6) when installed Pathauto will provide a new "Update Action" in case your URLs change. Co-Maintainers Pathauto was originally written by mikeryan and maintained by Greg Knaddison (greggles) . Pledges #D8CX : I pledge that Pathauto will have a full Drupal 8 release on the day that Drupal 8 is released. Downloads

Internationalization Views Translate views using Internationalization. This is a work in progress and not all Views properties can be translated yet. Requires Internationalization 6.x-1.5 or newer. This module has been moved from Internationalization package so we can have different branches compatible with each of the Views versions. Use the same branch of the Views version you are using (2.x. 3.x) Roadmap Drupal 6 i18nviews 2.x The 2.x version has grown up over some time. Drupal 6 i18nviews 3.x Views 3 introduces a complete new translation layer. Drupal 7 There's a basic D7 port available now. New maintainer for i18nviews Jose Reyero decided to release i18nviews primary maintenance.Miro Dietiker of MD Systems took over maintainership for future.

Libraries API The common denominator for all Drupal modules/profiles/themes that integrate with external libraries. This module introduces a common repository for libraries in sites/all/libraries resp. sites/<domain>/libraries for contributed modules. External libraries Denotes libraries ("plugins") that are neither shipped nor packaged with a project on drupal.org. Drupal 7 only has built-in support for non-external libraries via hook_library(). Goals The same library can be shared by more than one module.The same library can be shared by more than one site.Ease the process of upgrading a module that requires an external library. Documentation The 1.x branch has very basic support for placing libraries in the sites/all/libraries folder, while more advanced features (including the above list) are currently being fleshed out in the 2.x branch (D7 only at the moment).
